tv Today in the Bay NBC October 15, 2012 5:00am-6:00am PDT
>> reporter: good morning. i'm bob redell. we'll talk about the 49ers latest attempt to bring the super bowl to the south bay. that story coming up. and we've got some really thick fog out there this morning. you want to give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination safely. meanwhile a warmup on the way. i'll let you know when the 90s return. for sure what she said the first part. the fog, the advisories. we're watching that slower commute and giving you the warnings. >> and from the bay bridge to the golden gate bridge toll plaza. no one is on the road at this time on this monday, october 15th. this is "today in the bay." good morning to you. thanks for waking up with us. it is 5:00. i'm marla tellez in for jon kelley. >> and i'm laura garcia-cannon. we're going to find out today if the bay area is on the short list for the super bowl.
it is san francisco that's likely to win big. bob redell is live in santa clara this morning with more on what a super bowl bid means for the entire bay area. good morning, bob. >> reporter: good morning to you, laura and marla. later today the 49ers will learn if their new $1.2 billion stadium going up right behind me here in santa clara will be in the running to host super bowl mmxvi or 2017. even though the game would be held down here a lot of the partying would take place 30 miles north in san francisco where the team has been playing all this time. that means sf could take away some of the financial benefit. part of the driving force behind this, mayor ed lee of san francisco who has been working with the 49ers for putting together a bid for bringing the super bowl back to the bay area. santa clara's mayor is appreciative with ed lee taking the lead in this process.
in his eyes what's good for sf is good for the region. >> great weather, great people, great food, lots of entertainment. this is going to be an amazing place around super bowl. we're going to have parties all the way from san francisco down to san jose and santa clara as well. it's going to be an exciting place to be for everyone. >> reporter: it's been a while since the bay area hosted a super bowl. it was actually back in 1985. that super bowl taking place at stanford stadium. to give you a sense of the connection the 49ers still feel to sf even though they're moving to santa clara, the team owner has told the chronicle that if the 49ers win another super bowl while playing out of the south bay, the victory parade would be in san francisco. the 49ers are expected to make the short list as being hosts for 2016 or 2017. why not 2014 when the new stadium is scheduled to open? the nfl has rules that you must play two full seasons in your stadium before being qualified
to host a super bowl in that said stadium. so if they get the short list, make the short list, what they must do is submit a plan and do a live presentation to all 32 nfl owners in may. bob redell, "today in the bay." thanks. 5:03. a preliminary hearing begins today in a murder case that's gone unsolved for 30 years. steven carlson is accused of killing 14-year-old tina fales. carlson was 16 at the time of the killing, but investigators did not link him to the case until last year. carlson has pleaded not guilty to the charge. the now 44-year-old is expected in court in oakland today for a preliminary hearing. a ruling is expected today on whether the teen accused of stealing a celebrity chef's lamborghini can stand trial. max wade's preliminary hearing is expected to wrap up with closing arguments this morning. wade is accused of stealing chef
guy fieri's lamborghini in may of last year. he drove the car around almost a year before police were able to track him down. wade is also facing attempted murder charges for allegedly shooting at a marin county couple in april. san jose police say they have caught a woman responsible for almost a can dozen trash bin fires in the city. fire investigators say they saw 56-year-old glynnis trying to set a fire saturday night. they think she's responsible for a string of fires and garbage cans and bushes in west san jose. all of the fires were set behind homes and did not do major damage. well, tickets are still available to tonight's giants game, but you're going to have to pay through the nose to get them. that's a lot. >> christie smith is live in san francisco with details on that. plus some things everyone is
going to do tonight, something that people need to know, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. oh, did you see it? torture started right off the bat with the giants dropping game one of the national league championship. certainly disappointing for fans who filled the stadium. but maybe only briefly, because tickets still available for tonight's game at at&t park. not only do fans think the giants will come back to defeat the st. louis cardinals, but fans are feeling the giants will go all the way. the giants have played six games in the postseason and they have got to turn this around. this evening expect gridlock on the trains and in the streets. wear your comfortable shoes if you grab one of those last-minute tickets. . them standing room only. fans say they are ready to watch the team battle right back. >> i think we're going to be fine. we're going to come back like we did last series and show everybody exactly what the giants are about. >> it just feels very, very
similar to 2010, it really does. you can feel it here. you can feel it in the stadium, you can feel it around the stadium. everybody is all pumped up. it really feels so much like 2010, i really feel it. >> reporter: we checked in on stubhub this morning and they have got over 4,000 tickets available. some are $88 on the low end but be ready to stand all the way up to the big spenders, $3500 for lower box all the way up to more than $9,000. certainly that is a fan. game time tonight at 5:00. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, "today in the bay." >> i'll be watching. >> there we go. >> i know meteorologist christina loren will be too. >> if you can see by the fog. that will clear by tonight. >> hopefully. it will clear by probably 10:00 a.m. but getting worse before it gets better, that's certainly the story of the morning. good morning to you, laura and marla. good morning to you at home.
this is san jose but we have just about as much fog in every city. livermore in the extreme east bay has not quite yet drifted your way but we are counting on that. gilroy is down a quarter of a mile. you have half a mile visibility from santa rosa to san francisco. even in napa, a quarter of a mile. in some spots you only have several hundred feet. 57 degrees in napa, 56 in san francisco. take you into the south bay where temperatures are just about as chilly. we're at 54 degrees to start you out in gilroy. grab your coat, leave your umbrella at home all week. in fact the opposite of last week with temperatures dropping off. we're talking about a substantial warmup that's going to bring your temperatures into the mid-90s by thursday. today we're talking mid-80 in the warmest cities across the bay and that's because fog is going to move quickly. that's why you get the fog, the reduced visibility right at the ground level so today's highs
will work out like this. 85 in livermore, 84 in fwgilroy and 77 in oakland. that warmup really moves in as we head through tomorrow. take you through that forecast first. let's check on that all-important drive. good morning, mike. >> not a great morning as far as visibility goes. christina shows you around the bay. this is 880 through fremont. you can tell because all the way on the left is that new auto mall sign so we can see that but not much beyond there. drivers, you're okay. taking another live look across the bay through palo alto. you can see just about a half mile through the areas but just seeing off the freeway, which you don't need to drive there anyway. some glowing lights along the peninsula. a little dip to the speeds means you're right around 60 and that's probably advisable through some of the areas with lower clouds and thicker fog. we're talking about the approach to at&t park this evening because with that second game in the series so there will be a lot of congestion into and out
of the city. we'll look farther north for the 101 southbound commute that curves at tara lyerra linda. very thick fog reported as well. back to you. 5:09. the people in san jose gathered this weekend to raise awareness for food allergies with a 5k run and walk. the memorial walk took place at lake cunningham saturday morning. our own laura garcia-cannon emceed the event. it was organized in honor of a teenager who died from an allergic reaction while vacationing in mexico with his family in 2008. you were saying what a great turnout you had there. >> oh, it was an amazing turnout. the second time they have had this event so it's really, really nice the family does that. a new refund in a live
welcome back, everyone. that is where it all happens, the great oz waving at us this morning. otherwise known as gabrielle. she's at the helm directing "today in the bay" this morning. how they do it, keep it altogether, i don't know. it's 5:12 right now. we're such a team. early this morning a japanese firm announced it was buying phone company sprint. scott mcgrew, that announcement coming literally while people slept. >> at 1:00 a.m. our time. it's tough to coordinate new york, tokyo and kansas where sprint is located. if you are a sprint customer,
nothing should change, certainly not right away. soft bank is not a bank, it's just an -- the english version of a japanese name, so there you go. the purchase is interesting because it is the largest japanese purchase of anything outside of its borders in its history. it comes at a time when the u.s. congress is warning about chinese access to our telecommunications system. more reports this morning that layoffs at sunnyvale's chip maker amd are indeed coming, this time from the "wall street journal." amd makes chips for computers and computers are suddenly kind of unpopular thanks to the smartphones and the tablets. amd reports profits on thursday, but last week warned about its financials. let's turnpike to courtney reagan now at cnbc headquarters. >> reporter: good morning to you, scott. futures are higher after the markets turned in their worst week from the beginning of june.
alcoa cut its global demand. chevron warned it could report much worse results and amd slashed its sales targets. citigroup reports this morning and we'll hear from ge, microsoft and intel later this week. today we'll get data on retail sales and business inventories. the dow edged up 2 friday to 13,328. the nasdaq slipped 5 to 3044. amazon says some customers will be available for a refund. the credits will range from 30 cents to $1.32 per ebook depending on whether or not they were best-selling titles or not. however, the refunds won't be available until the court signs off on the settlement in february so don't hold your breath for that 30 cents. back to you. >> thank you much. ladies, i know you'll look at the vice presidential debates on "saturday night live" coming up in just a bit. we also saw the iphone 5 made
fun of a bit too as well. we'll show clips of that as well. >> it is hard not to watch the debate these days and think what is "saturday night live" going to do. >> they have got good all of a sudden. there was a time where maybe they had lost track but they're back. >> we know it's good if we can get scott mcgrew to stay up late. well, monday starts off very foggy outside. >> yeah, it is dense out there. a new cast. a lot of new members on that crew, you should check it out. we have it on demand, of course. comcast station. we're looking good out there right now except for where the fog is thick and swirling around. i want to show you one of the clearer places at at&t park. we want those giants to win it today, 5:15. it's chilly out there and visibility is still dropping off. we're expecting it to get worse before it gets better between the hours of 6:00 and 7:00, all the way to 7:30 we'll have really deep pockets out there of fog so keep that in mind.
less than a quarter of a mile visibility in parts of the bay area. it's chilly out there to start. good morning, novato, 52 degrees there, 54 in santa cruise. so high pressure is moving in today. a week disturbance is coming in right now. after it heads out of here high pressure heads in quickly. dense fog will be a factor but we'll see skies clear by 10:00 a.m. highs will be comfortable in the mid-80s. 85 in livermore today, 74 in san francisco. look, you can hit the beach in santa cruz at 80 degrees. as we head throughout tomorrow a touch warmer. we hit the 90s by wednesday and peak on thursday. 94 inland, 85 bayside and 81 at the coast. we'll see how that fog is impacting your drive. good morning, mike. >> you should consider it an impact so lower the speeds and get out of the house a little earlier. chp gives an advisory right here for the bay bridge coming across the span. we're already starting to see a
little slowing as you're coming up the inkline and that might be affected by your visibility. we'll take you farther out because oakland, your visibility is okay. actually even out of the altamont pass which is a rare treat but the fog is creeping over 580 as well. right now we just have the commute that's starting to build. construction eastbound pretty typical, a little slowing through the zone but no big deals here. the san mateo bridge here over on the eastern side, here's westbound your commute. crystal clear view, right? look at the peninsula side from foster side and san mateo and it's tough to make out those folks getting off that same span. so here's where the low clouds and fog are affecting your visibility and drive. in the south bay we've got some pockets. this is northbound 101 at 680. you can't even see the southbound side. very little traffic but we'll send it over to you guys with just that note. 5:17. they were outlawed in 2009 but telemarketing robo calls are spurring more complaints than ever.
most of them are scams, according to the ftc. investigative reporter vicky nguyen has a look at which companies are getting the most complaints. >> reporter: we looked at a list of the top violators over the past year and found that companies claiming to be some type of credit card service are number one on the consumer gripe list. and even if you are on that do-not-call list, it may not be enough to stop the robo calls. nearly every day -- >> i'm calling to see if you need your carpet professionally steam cleaned. >> reporter: the phone rings. >> hello? >> reporter: with a robo call in michael rosenthal's home. >> this is a very important phone call for the diabetic home. >> reporter: he says he's been on the do-not-call list since it was created. >> that's what pisses me off. >> reporter: he tried to turnpike the tables on the telemarketers, recording their recorded messages and confronting them. >> how did you get my number?
hello? usually what would happen is click, they would hang up. >> reporter: but engaging the robo callers is a mistake. it can even trigger more calls, because it tells the company there's a human on the other end of the line. >> hang up. don't push one. don't call a number they give you because that will just connect you to a scam artist. >> reporter: reputable companies know robo calls are illegal, unless you've given the company permission in writing to call you. >> which no one ever does. >> reporter: so if you do get one, odds are it's coming from a company that's looking to steal your money. the most common offers are bogus services that require a monthly payment. >> credit card services, debt negotiation services, auto warranties, medical insurance, things like that where you're expecting to pay over time, they're hoping to get you in that way. >> reporter: the ftc says take simple steps to stop the calls. don't rns a, don't push any
buttons and if you do get the company's name, file a kplan complaint. this thursday the agency is reaching out to consumers. you can ask questions live on their facebook page during the forum that starts 6:00 a.m. our time. i'm vicky nguyen, nbc bay area news. 5:20. coming up, getting ready for halloween. the new report out this morning that looks at the best bay area neighborhoods to take your kids trick-or-treating. have you heard of the new dialing procedure for the 408 and 669 area codes? no, what is it? starting october 20, 2012, if you have a 408 or 669 number, you'll need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number for all calls. o.k., but what if i have an 408 number and i'm calling a 408 number? you'll still need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number. so when in doubt, dial it out!
christina. 5:22. mountain view police are cracking down on drivers who are speeding along a dangerous road. the move is in response to a crash in june that killed a man at a bus stop near castro elementary school. the driver was speeding when you lost control and jumped the curb. mountain view police put out a warning on facebook last week reminding drivers to slow down and watch for pedestrians and bikes in crosswalks and on sidewalks. a community meeting will be held tonight so residents can talk about their concerns. a new report out this morning looks at the best cities to trick-or-treat in. a couple of bay area ones made the list. san francisco is tops, according to the real estate website zillo. look at the crowd. second year in a row sf has come in at number one. meanwhile, san jose has moved up the slot to number five. they also looked at the top five neighborhoods. in san francisco, presidio
heights, sea cliff, noe valley, and lake street. in saj, cambrian, rose garden, willow glen, santa teresa and evergreen valley. >> and the triplets this year? >> a minnie mouse, a cinderella and a race car. >> christina, the forecast looking today? >> glad to see they couordinate. >> i wanted three blind mice. >> if you at home have not seen how fast these triplets are growing up, an adorable picture from this weekend. this morning as you're getting your kids ready for school, you want to dress them for the two parts of the day. there's thick fog, drizzle and mist but look where we are headed. towards the 80s in places like livermore. 85 there. 74 in san francisco and 84 degrees in santa teresa as we head throughout this afternoon. the giants are back at it, game two tonight 5:07.
between about 65 and 67 degrees. wind will come into play taking that ball out to mccovey cove. west-northwest 10 to 20 miles an hour with locally heavy gusts. let's go, giants. we are rooting for you. >> we're looking over to oakland 880 where northbound those taillights move smoothly and the visibility okay here. we'll look on the map because the southbound side with the headlights on the live shot but on the maps we'll show you the arrow going south out of downtown oakland heading down towards 23rd. we do have an accident right there currently moved over to the shoulder but i do see a little slowing that's popped up thlast few minutes so we'll track that in both directions. again, that fog drifting around so it may be an issue. west 580 is your commute direction approaching. things should be moved off to the shoulder but visibility still holding up okay through that side of the bay. peninsula side, that's where it's drifting in off of the
coast. now 101, 280, 380 all showing signs of mist and drizzle as well, guys. back to you. did you happen to see snl, the vice presidential debate still has people talking not about the issues but about the behavior of the candidates. this weekend it was the subject of the "saturday night live" skit. >> four years ago, president barack obama made a promise. that he would bring down unemployment below 6%. >> oh, this guy. >> he said but by the end of his first term he would cut the deficit in half. >> oh! >> and yet he still has not put a single credible plan on the table on how to deal with the desk sgliesz martha, with all due respect, this is a bunch of mularkey. >> they do it so fun. it pokes fun at vice president biden's interruptions and facial expressions along with paul ryan's frequent water breaks.
>> they do it really great. now another debate coming up tomorrow. we'll see what next saturday will hold. 5:27. still to come, a major step forward in the trial of the man accused of the september 11th attacks. we'll tell you what's happening today. alright let's break it down. mom, pop it. ♪ two inches apart, becky. two inches. t-minus nine minutes. [ ding ] [ female announcer ] pillsbury cinnamon rolls. let the making begin. ♪
the giants fall to the cardinals in a 6-4 loss but they'll be back on the field in less than 12 hours, and tickets are still available. i'm christie smith. i'll tell you how much it will cost you coming up. i'm bob redell in the south bay where the 49ers should find out later today whether they're still in the running to host another super bowl in coming years. that story coming up. and we've got dense fog and thick, low clouds spanning all the way inland this morning. we'll let you know when it's expected to clear your city. and that fog means we have slowing for everyone this morning. we'll show you exactly how it's affecting your drive coming up. and a live look outside.
that's that fog everybody is talking about. they certainly have an idea of when it's going to clear. thanks for joining us this monday morning, october 14th. this is "today in the bay." good morning to you. thanks for being with us. it is 5:30. i'm marla tellez. jon kelley is off today. >> and i'm laura garcia-cannon. the giants are back at it again tonight. >> john henry smith is live at at&t park where the team is trying to rebound after a tough game one. john henry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, marla and laura. well, the big question tonight is, is game two for the giants a must-win? the answer yes and no. look, if the giants lose tonight then they'll have to go on the road to st. louis where they'll have to win two out of three to avoid elimination. when you think about it, that's actually a better scenario than the one they faced in the division series when they had to
win three out of three in cincinnati to avoid elimination and we all know the giants were able to get that done. bottom line don't think the giants are overly concerned about dropping game one. >> best out of seven. we've shown how resilient we can be. you know, you hate to lose them at home. but it happens. >> the playoffs, anything can happen. this is a never say die mentality among two teams right now. it's not like one team is out of the playoffs, one team is in it. you've got two teams trying to extend their season so i'm pretty sure they're going to be close games and every out will be tough to get. >> i think we just have to take away from this first game the positives that we were down 6-0 and got back into striking distance really quick. tomorrow we can get on the board first and get a little bit of breathing room. >> reporter: of course he's
referring to ripe vogelsong, tonight's game two starter. he pitched a solid five innings in game two of the division series. he'll be facing chris carpenter for the st. louis cardinals and carpenter is no slouch. he's a former cy young winner who is 10-2 lifetime in the postseason. game time -- well, first pitch is at 5:15 p.m. from at&t park, i'm john henry smith, nbc bay area news. >> thanks, john henry. giants fans may be feeling a little down and out but don't count them out certainly. >> a win tonight during game two could be a game-changer and there are still some seats available if you're willing to pay. christie smith is live in san francisco with details on what every fan needs to know. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. certainly the fans held up their end. they were loud and enthusiastic as ever but in the end they had to walk away disappointed, shake it off and look towards
tonight's game, another rematch with the st. louis cardinals. they have got to turn this thing around. in the postseason they're 0-3 at home and 3-0 on the road. last night a 6-4 loss, but the fans say they're feeling that 2010 magic again, taking that first loss in stride. tonight the trains and streets around at&t park will be packed, but there are tickets available. some of them standing room only, so certainly leave those high heels at home. the giants faithful ready for round two. >> it was disappointing but the giants are really good at coming back so i have a good feeling. >> reporter: now, if you need tickets, you are in luck. there are more than 4500 tickets available for tonight's game starting at about $88. again, with those you might be leading the seventh inning stretch because you will be standing probably. all the way up to $9,000 tickets. those are for those high roller fans. of course something for most
budgets. again, that game time just after 5:00 tonight. reporting live in san francisco, christie smith, "today in the bay." 5:34. happening now, antioch police are looking for suspects in a double homicide this morning. police say someone shot a man and a woman to death near the pittsburg/antioch border. it happened just off highway 4 around 5:30 yesterday evening. the man died at the scene. the woman died later at the hospital. police have no motive or suspects at this time. this morning family members of those who died in the september 11th attacks will come face to face with some of the 19 planned the attacks. they're being allowed to watch a closed circuit broadcast. the rest of the public will not have access to the video feed. the court session is being held at guantanamo bay in cuba. five suspects, including the alleged mastermind, have been charged in those terrorist attacks. back here in the bay area, san francisco police are trying
to figure out what caused a football fan to stab another fan. it happened near harney way and jamestown avenue just as yesterday's game was getting under way. police say a 27-year-old man from elk grove was with a group of friends when two men approached them. an argument started and someone stabbed the 27-year-old. he was seriously hurt but is expected to survive. police arrested a 22-year-old man from daly city and a 30-year-old man from san francisco. 5:35. new this morning, could the super bowl be coming back to the bay area? we'll find out today if san francisco is in the running to host football's biggest game in 2016 or 2017. bob redell is live at the new 49er stadium in santa clara, which would be the site of the game. but there's something unusual about the way a bay area super bowl would actually be hosted. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, laura. yes, we should learn later this morning the 49ers, that is,
whether their new $1.2 billion stadium that you can see that is going up rather quickly here in santa clara will be the host of the 2016 or 2017 super bowl. alluding to what you were just saying, even though the game would be played in the south bay, a lot of the partying and official festivities would take place about 40 miles north in san francisco where the team has been playing all this time. that means it could take away some of santa clara's super bowl financial benefits. now, part of the driving force behind all of this is mayor ed lee from san francisco who's been working together putting together a bid for bringing the super bowl back to the bay area. santa clara's mayor is appreciative of this. he said mayor lee is helping santa clara by taking the lead in the process. there's no hard feelings with some of the festivities moving up north. in his eyes, what's good for sf is good for the region. >> we're all one region, the san francisco bay region. santa clara and san francisco
have -- we have a history going back to the mission and the presidio so we are only separated by 40 miles and there will be 40 miles of parties i'm sure between. i think it's okay just to showcase how great a place it is we live. >> reporter: the last time the bay area hosted a super bowl was many years ago, back in 1985. that was played at stanford stadium. to give you a sense of the connection the 49ers still feel to sf, even though they're moving down here to santa clara, team owner jed york has told the chronicle that if the 49ers win another super bowl playing out of the south bay, the victory parade would be in san francisco. now, the 49ers are expected to make the short list for the 2016 or 2017 super bowl. you're probably wondering why not 2015 or 2014. well, the nfl requires you to play two full seasons in your stadium before you can qualify as a host. if they do make the short list,
they will make a presentation in may to all 32 nfl owners who have the final say. reporting live here in santa clara, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thanks, bob. the famous san francisco fog ha moved in on this monday. let's take a look at the forecast with meteorologist christina loren. good morning. >> hey, good morning. yeah, it's funny how this fog is really working this morning. i want to start with this live picture of at&t park where you still have visibility but it's certainly dropping here. look at that, a little charter bus just heading out of at&t park. were our boys on that bus? the curiosity prevails. we do know the weather will hold up for that game at at&t park that starts at 5:20 tonight. right now the big concern for the morning is the fog that continues to plague you up in the north bay in particular. you've got reduced visibility, down to a quarter of a mile. down to 100 feet in some spots through the south bay as well. as we head throughout the day
today high pressure will portion the marine layer right to the surface and that compression drives it right down to the street level so that's why you're losing your visibility, although it will clear by 10:00 a.m. clearing skies early means 80s return inland today. here are some of your highs looking very comfortable all across the bay area. 88 in napa, 74 in san francisco and 78 in san jose today. let's take a look at your drive with mike. good morning to you. >> good morning. let's look to the san mateo bridge. we're talking about a clear view on the hayward side but as we move over to the peninsula side, let me show you the maps and the contour data, the orange is where fog and mist might affect your drive an visibility. that's 101 and 280 creeping in off of the coast. so 280. highway 1 also an issue. let's get a live look outside. oakland northbound taillights past the coliseum just fine. the southbound side i've been tracking that accident at 23rd
and i'll bring you that update coming up in just a few minutes. back to you. >> thanks action mike. 5:40 now. president obama and mitt romney hunkering down to get ready for round two. a live report on debate preps coming up. plus new details into the chevron refine refire. the documents that could reveal the fire was preventible.
welcome back, everyone. a good monday morning to you. today is the final cram session before the second presidential debate tomorrow night in new york. aides say president obama will be more aggressive and mitt romney's camp says he'll be ready. tracie potts live on capitol hill this morning with more on what we can expect to see from the president. good morning. >> reporter: laura, good morning. advisers have been telling us the president saw the tape of that last debate and didn't like it too much. was disappointed the way they

actually bringing in some new star power this week. what can you tell bus that? >> yeah, we have clint eastwood for the republicans and now we get the boss. bruce springsteen is coming out to do a couple of concerts in iowa and ohio. that on behalf of president obama. it is 5:44. a pakistani teen is headed to the united kingdom to seek treatment after being attacked by the taliban. the 14-year-old was shot last week as she was returning home from school. two other classmates were also caught in that gunfire. there's no word on their condition. pakistani officials say taliban members shot them because they were pushing for women's education and denouncing the terrorist group. doctors say the teen faces a long road to recovery. 5:44. a new health study could ease some worried parents. researchers at kaiser permanente say use of the hpv vaccine does

out. when you travel at that speed with the suit that's pressurized, you don't feel the air at all so it's hard to preticket what you have to do. >> he reached a top speed of 834 miles per hour. that is faster than the blue angels during fleet week. >> i've been skydiving and that first step is a doozy, but i can't imagine his first step. he is a stud. >> i'm blown away that you went skydiving. >> really? there's a lot of things about me. it's a lot of fine. >> laura the explora. >> we've got a good-looking day shaping up. give yourself ample time to reach your destination safely with a lot of fog out there. it is drifting around, especially over our local highways over the south bay. you can see from this live picture the visibility has dropped off. this is san jose. as we head throughout the morning hours, we're going to lose that fog quickly.
high pressure is forcing all that moisture right to the surface. you might have to use your windshield wipers along the coast with mist and drizzle. we're at 55 to start you out in san francisco, 54 in san jose and chilly in concord at 55 degrees. so here are your visibilities. as we head throughout the morning hours, we're expecting the fog to be at its most severe between 7:00 and 8:00. there's a pocket in gilroy where you can only see about 200 feet. also napa to santa rosa, watch out for thick pockets of fog out there until about 10:00 a.m. look at what happens. we set your futurecast in motion. the fog has just settled over the san francisco bay but the greater bay area getting abundant sunshine. we'll lose that fog by 11:00 a.m. over the entire bay area and look at what all that sunshine coming in does to your high temperatures. 85 in livermore today, 84 down in gilroy, 78 in los gatos and 78 in redwood city. the climb is on throughout the
next few days. back to the 90s by wednesday. if you wanted to hit the beach or maybe get a little cold, you can hit the beach comfortably on thursday, 94 degrees. it's going to be nice and then we drop you back to the 70s as we head into the weekend with another area of low pressure on the way. so we've got a warmup but it's not going to last long. let's check on your drive right now. good morning, mike. >> good morning. we'll see if we can plan some sick time for thursday. we're looking over here to the south bay. christina showed you visibility may be an issue. the speeds okay but we do have your first burst as far as that volume of traffic building. we'll see 87 as well. fog is likely to impact coming over the hill. 85 likely to slow down as well. we're watching the south bay and christina said fog in gilroy down to below a quarter mile so that's a big concern. over here on the peninsula, that's where the fog and mist have had a chance to settle on the roadways. this may affect your roadway conditions as well for 280.
highway 1 along the coast, we know about that and maybe as far over as 101 and the san mateo bridge. but no problems as far as speeds foe on the peninsula. for the north bay we have anywhere north of san rafael, the potential for very low visibility. highway 37 into and out of valero also the case. we'll look at san rafael. the live camera at the krvz at terra linda and you see the haze here. the bay bridge, the cash lanes start to back up. a fog advisory also for that spanish you had by chp. 5:49. a san jose city councilwoman is accusing police are delaying their response times on purpose. rose herrera sent a mailer to voters claiming police are using tactics against the city in retaliation over pension reform. this weekend her critics, including the mother of a police officer who was killed on the job, held a news conference
blasting herrera's claims. >> if she believes cops and firefighters don't do all they can to get to an emergency, she is delusional and, therefore, unfit to serve. >> according to an investigative reporter for the "orange county register" the alleged tactics are part of the playbook developed by a law firm that represents 120 police unions to use when contract negotiations have hit a wall. herrera says police have not denied the existence of this playbook. >> my issues with the union leadership and the mail piece -- i find it curious that the mail piece that they referred to, they didn't deny its existence and they didn't refute what it talks about. they simply continued their hatred attack against me. >> herrera is running for re-election in san jose's district 8. the corroded pipe which is believed to be the cause of the massive fire at the chevron refinery back in august is now
being linked to another fire just last year. the san francisco chronicle is reporting the investigation into the much smaller fire in october of 2011 documented allegations of corrosion from two workers. that fire happened during a scheduled maintenance shutdown and was quickly put out. now, at the time chevron officials said the corrosion that led to the fire was unexpected and that an investigation found nothing unusual. 5:51. coming up, it was a tough trip with plenty of delays, but the shuttle "endeavour" has finally made it home. and "saturday night live" manages to put iphone 5's problems into perspective. we'll take a look coming up.
the space shuttle "endeavour" finally home this morning. thousands of people greeted the orbiter yesterday as it arrived at a california science center in los angeles. it was supposed to have made it back on saturday, but the hauler carrying the spacecraft sprang a hydraulic leak. tree trimmers also had to be called in to make way for its 78-food wing span. it caused a 17-hour delay, but people living in the area didn't seem to mind. they were just very happy to see a part of history. >> it's just a happiness, a joy that it's brought. oh, lovely, wonderful, awesome, all the adjectives you can think of. all of them. >> no doubt pretty amazing seeing that coming down the street. space shuttle "endeavour" will be on public display later this month. plans are under way to construct a new building for that orbiter. we were talking earlier about "saturday night live" and the vice presidential debate. scott, they hit the iphone 5 pretty hard as well. >> snl is kind of relevant
again. they stepped up their act. they made fun of tech reporters griping about the flaws of the iphone 5 with a pretend talk show where they had chinese workers who actually made the phone. they sympathized with problems like oh, you wanted your map to show the way to macy's, it sent you to j.c. penney's instead. such a tragedy, tears. now, we don't have that problem because we live where we work. i put a link to this whole skit on our facebook page as well. over the weekend lawyers representing plaintiffs in a class action suit against electronic arts sent out a notification that you can get an $8 refund if you bought a video game from ea, a football video game. the complaint says ea unfairly monopolized football games by i inking exclusive deals with the leagues. google reports its profits
thursday, amd and intel as well. amd last week warning of bad news. here you see friday's open. pleasanton-based workday led the biggest tech ipo since facebook. shares ended the day friday up 73%. >> wow, that's amazing. >> thanks, scott. we want to check your forecast right now with meteorologist christina loren. you're going to notice a foggy start across many parts of the bay area. when is that going to clear? >> we're going to take a look at that right now. good morning to you. i want to point out we have very deep pockets of fog from santa rosa through napa. even starting to drop off in concord and gilroy. give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination safety. look at that, presto, a warm day ahead. right now we want to take a look at your morning drive with mike. >> good morning. as that fog that christina is talking about before burns off, it's causing an issue for your commute.
the bay bridge looks just fine at the toll plaza. we have the cash lanes backing up but also fog advisory. there's fog drifting around most of your commute spots except oakland and livermore looking okay right now. a live look farther south and in fremont this is where the fog does affect our view. right around cushing parkway volume is picking up here as well as the peninsula where there's also low clouds and visibility. tough along the peninsula. back to you. the peanut butter recall that impacted a number of stores is now expanding. we'll have the latest details still ahead. have you heard of the new dialing procedure
for the 408 and 669 area codes? no, what is it? starting october 20, 2012, if you have a 408 or 669 number, you'll need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number for all calls. o.k., but what if i have an 408 number and i'm calling a 408 number? you'll still need to dial 1 plus the area code plus the phone number. so when in doubt, dial it out! cardinals win game one 6-4. >> deja vu all over again. the giants start another series in a slump. we have live team coverage as fans hold on to hope for a home field turn-around. and fog so
